Footnotes

  • The Rolex Daytona continues to be among the most sought after vintage watches on the market today. The bold contrast between the dial colour and the subsidiary dials makes this model instantly recognisable and as such it has long been lauded as a design icon. Both references 6263 and 6265 were launched in 1969, thus replacing the first Oyster Cosmograph 6240. The 6263, a stainless steel model with screw-down pushers remained in production for nearly 20 years.

    The current lot presents as a complete set with not only the box but also guarantee papers as well as the original invoice. The watch is offered by the original owner.
